Foreigners who have been legally and continuously residing in Turkey for at least 5 years for certain reasons (such as work, owning real estate, marriage to a Turkish citizen etc.) may apply for Turkish citizenship, on the condition that they meet certain criteria such as speaking sufficient Turkish. However, foreigners who buy a real estate in Turkey that is worth at least 250,000 USD may apply for Turkish citizenship immediately, without having to reside in Turkey for years and without having to speak Turkish. If the property in which you are investing is in Antalya, it is recommended that you contact an Antalya lawyer, an Antalya attorney or an Antalya law firm.
The two other alternative forms of investment for Turkish citizenship are either registering a company in Turkey with 500,000 USD paid capital or depositing 500,000 USD in a Turkish bank with a pledge to not withdraw it for years.
Before you apply for Turkish citizenship, it is recommended that you contact a Turkish immigration attorney in Istanbul or an immigration attorney in Antalya. If you wish to apply for Turkish citizenship in Antalya, then you can contact an Antalya lawyer, an Antalya attorney or an Antalya law firm.
In order to apply for Turkish citizenship through 250,000 USD investment into real estate, the real estate must be eligible, meet certain criteria and those eligibility and the satisfaction of the criteria must be approved both by a specially-licensed surveyor and the Land Registry General Directorate.
You can hire a Turkish immigration lawyer to check the eligibility of the real estate before you purchase it. An immigration lawyer can also do the background check of the property, arrange the secure transaction of the price of the real estate and apply for residence permit on your behalf. If the property in which you are investing is in Alanya, it is recommended that you contact an Alanya lawyer, an Alanya attorney or an Alanya law firm.
